Next time moviegoers glimpse Agyness Deyn up on the silver screen, she’ll be rubbing shoulders with a posse of A-listers in Hollywood’s Golden Age for Joel and Ethan Coen’s soon-to-be-released dramedy Hail, Caesar!, though Deadline reports that the actress has already lined up her next project.
Joining Lennart Ruff’s sci-fi movie The Titan, Deyn will star opposite Clash of the Titans co-star Sam Worthington, Sofia Boutella, Taylor Schilling, Tom Wilkinson and fellow newcomers Diego Boneta and Aleksander Jovanovic. Less a Greek-inspired epic and more an “elevated sci-fi,” Ruff’s new feature looks set to propel viewers into the not-so-distant future, one which charts the journey of a military family at the forefront of a groundbreaking experiment that has deep ramifications for all of humanity.
Dabbling with genetic evolution in space, the core concept driving the director’s foray into science fiction is brimming with existential themes of the stars and our own place among them. Hell On Wheels scribe Max Hurwitz penned the screenplay, working from an original story by Arash Amel (Grace Of Monaco), who is also set to produce the feature film.
Voltage Pictures is handling international distribution, though the studio didn’t confirm which characters any of the cast mentioned will be playing, barring the fact that Worthington is poised to take point as the lead.
Alas, Diego Boneta, Aleksander Jovanovic and Agyness Deyn look to the three final additions to Lennart’s starry cast, with plans now in place to get the cameras rolling on February 1 in Gran Canaria. That would put The Titan on course for release in early-to-mid 2017 depending on the length of time Voltage Pictures delegates to special effects work on Lennart’s directorial debut.
